    So far, I have found:

    Yamaha 1400 and 2400
    Sony 3000
    Denon 3803
    Kenwood 5090, 5700, 5900

    Any others?

    I really dont see the need to post 2 threads on essentially the same topic - But as for my opinion - just remember that any receiver that upconverts your signal will not improve its signal. If you're going w/ composite outs on your dvd player and upconverting it to component, it won't improve the picture quality. The signal has already been limited at the source player.

    I made a mistake in the title of the 1st post, so I thought I would delete it - but turns out you cannot delete a thread.

    I fully understand the concept. In fact, I purposely avoided using the word "upconvert" to discourage "re-educational" posts.

    I have found that upconverting my S-Video DBS connection to component through my Denon 3803 degrades the signal.

    the new Marantz SR7400 does the up-conversion correctly without any signal loss to my eye. then again, our unit has only been on the sales floor for about 3 days, so i haven't had time to fully evaluate this feature.

    i know the Integra line (from the DTR-6.4 and up) "converts all video inputs to 480i component," in Integra's words.

    the 6.4 and 7400 both MSRP for $999 for those who are shopping.

    Do any of the prior-year (8.3, etc) Integra models convert to component, or only the new ones?
